The GCF is currently organizing our first event to benefit children with disabilities. It will coincide with GIORGIO CHINAGLIA DAY – June 8th at Hofstra Stadium – Long Island. The New York Cosmos will retire the #9 at the game to honor Giorgio’s contribution to the club and the sport of soccer in America. We are planning a fundraising dinner and a clinic for the children at the Cosmos practice facilities some time during that weekend. More details will be announced shortly. We hope to see everyone come out to support the children and the club.

Welcome to the Giorgio Chinaglia Foundation!


The GCF is a non profit organization dedicated to the creation of soccer programs with a special focus on signature clinics for disabled children and their proper coaching. We have also created a scholarship fund for exceptional student athletes as well as the Giorgio Chinaglia Golden Eagle award, given to the professional player that displays the same talent and passion for the sport. The foundation strives to impact the lives of each and every participant in a meaningful way as Giorgio did during his illustrious football career. We encourage you to join us in changing the lives of countless children who deserve the chance to not only participate but succeed in a positive environment.
